The Language of Festivals and Beliefs

I had my early education in Spain.

Born and brought up in a predominantly western atmosphere, I grew up totally westernized in my thoughts and outlook.

On my return to India to complete my studies, I was shocked that the majority of people here, with whom I came in contact had little or no knowledge of the significance of Hindu Festivals and Beliefs. The people would enjoy them, and practice them mechanically but would not go into their 'why and wherefore'.

I read and attended discourses by learned people and realized that each belief, ritual and festival had scientific, logical and historic/legendary explanation.

I present to you 'The Language of Festivals and Beliefs' which hopefully will disperse the darkness which has clouded the customs, beliefs and festivals, which have been handed down to us, and restore them to their pristine beauty in the mind of the reader.
